I love SNL‘s “Weekend Update” feature, it’s my favorite part of the show. Coming soon to NBC, Weekend Update will appear in primetime!
Mashable reports, “SNL is having its best season in a quarter of a century — how many shows can say that?! — so we didn’t want them to take the summer off,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to have Colin Jost and Michael Che continuing their unique brand of news with fresh Weekend Update shows in primetime this August.”
Weekend Update would air on Thursdays at 9 p.m., hosted by its SNL anchors, Colin Jost and Michael Che. NBC has previously ordered extra Update episodes, though usually tied to a presidential election.
The episodes will begin airing on August 10.”
